|Wait until the robots start cloning us...|
|An authentic task? You're teasing me|
right? Where's my drill and kill?!
Students will use the skills of patterns, constructing pie graphs, regression functions for modeling and using their equations to make predictions. What makes a model strong? Students will explore this question. This lesson is designed to work with a class set of TI graphing calculators and would work with an Advanced Algebra 1 class, Algebra 2 or PreCalculus.
|That's like a lot of people, ya feel me?|
People should, like, stop making babies
-- "Predictive Models (the long and short of them)" -- students use linear models for global data for two different intervals (1750-2000 and 1975-2010). Students then are asked to develop their own non-linear regression functions.
|This will shape the world for |
generations to come. What can we do
to take action now?
-- "The World in 2050" -- students will compare the results of their 4 different results, use them to draw conclusion about modeling in general and will construct a pie graph representing the world in 2050.
